Historic Union Station. Comfortable waiting area with large leather seating. Good Security presence. Good Food. Amtrack and Metro were very positive expereriences. Union station the hub to everywhere in L.A, and Olivera Street right across the street.

There is a greyhound terminal at Union Station Los Angeles. If yours will stop there depends on where you are going. check the route. Greyhound is great at telling you stop overs.
